UPDATING OF SHIPBUILDING CAD/CAM SYSTEMS

With the rapid changes that are taking place in the field of information technology, it has become necessary for any industry and, in particular, for the shipbuilding industry, to renew periodically its computer systems to be able to remain competitive. The object of this paper is to lay out in general terms the method of renewing CAD/CAD systems, with emphasis on the special conditions that Russia is currently experiencing. This study considers the original HW and SW used in Russia. The human, technical and economic aspects are analyzed and a recommendation is given on how to optimize the update of the mentioned CAD/CAM systems, taking into account the actual situation and making provisions for the short and medium term.
